Future Watch: Ezekiel Elliott Football Rookie Cards, Cowboys – Coming out of a dominant NCAA football program like Ohio State, Ezekiel Elliott was a highly scouted player ahead of this year’s draft. However it was the Dallas Cowboys that pulled the trigger selecting him in the first round with the 4th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
Elliott earned all Big-Ten honors and numerous awards in the 2 years he was a starter for the Ohio State Buckeyes. A partial list includes such notable achievements as:
- Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year (2015)
- Big Ten Running Back of the Year (2015)
- Archie Griffin Award (2014)
- Big Ten champion (2014)
- CFP national champion (2014)
- James E. Sullivan Award (2014)
He helped lead the team to victories in the 2014 Sugar Bowl and the 2015 Fiesta Bowl.
His NFL Draft Profile states: “A couple years ago DeMarco Murray carried the football 449 times, had 2,200 yards, and I think Elliott is a better football player. You plug him in there behind an offensive line that’s in their prime, and you take a ton of pressure off a 36-year-old Tony Romo.” – Mike Mayock
